GruposVIDA gave a course on inner healing at a local church the first 3 Sundays in March. The 26 participants were very thankful to learn about inner healing issues for the first time. It was very satisfying for staff to see how people opened up during each session, sharing stories from their lives and expressing how they felt. Each week people shared testimonies about a change they were experiencing due to what they were learning. One older woman stood up and shared that she had always had low self-esteem. She said that, thanks to work she did in the small group breakout sessions, she learned to express what she was feeling without feeling fearful or inferior. This gave her the courage to stand up in front of the large group. She shared that she felt she had a voice and, for the first time, she could express what she thinks and how she feels.
When the course was over, the participants were all very interested in learning more. Their interest was so strong that 3 of the church leaders made the decision to be trained as gruposVida facilitators. Once they are trained, they will be able to hold weekly gruposVIDA support groups with their own church members.
Inner healing is critical to helping hurting people develop a sense of God’s purpose for their lives. In order for people to become change agents who can ultimately transform their communities, they must discover a new identity and vocation in the knowledge that each of us bears the image of God and is infinitely valuable to Him.
